Hot plasmas dominate the X-ray emission of supernova remnants, much of the interstellar medium in galaxies, galactic halos and winds, and the intra-cluster medium in clusters of galaxies. Plasma characteristics, observed through their X-ray morphology and spectral properties, reveal the physical processes at work and the structure and evolution of these systems.

This workshop aims to review our current understanding of X-ray plasmas, their modelling and their astrophysical implications. The goal is to prepare the younger generation and to foster cooperation between the participants on common astrophysics issues, on plasma code requirements, modelling of X-ray spectra, and data reduction of extended sources.
